In spite of being a pinoy-designed mobile phone, the Flare S5 Plus gets quite a few style out of more well-known top quality manufacturers. The curve on the backside for instance, plus the metallic body makes the handset feel a bit like Samsung’s Galaxy S7. The front of the device features a physical home button that also acts as the fingerprint scanner.

The backside of the unit has a detachable glossy covering.The 16-megapixel camera on the rear protrudes a few mm from the body, which may result in scuff marks in case you put the device down on rough surfaces. When you take off the back casing, you’ll find the removable 3000mAh battery, plus the SIM cards and the microSD slot.

The body of the mobile is metallic, which raises the total high-end feel of the device. The power and volume rocker can be found over the left part side of the phone. The 3.5mm jack port plus the USB Type-C port is positioned on the top and bottom, respectively. What exactly is completely new with the device is that it uses a USB Type-C connector, and features 700MHz LTE for a much better connectivity.

Flare S5 Plus is operated by MediaTek’s MT6753 octa-core processor, combined with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.
